25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Saucepan Oatmeal Cookies

Yesterday was our last day of school for eighteen days and I already feel busier than I did when working.  Trying to cram my life full of fun things I don't ordinarily have time for is proving to be more difficult than I expected.

Alas, I will not miss out on trying more delicious recipes.  I won't tell you what my doctor said pertaining to cookies but I can assure you she used the words Christmas cookies when speaking to me today.

These aren't very Christmas-y in my opinion but they are fun, easy, and delicious nonetheless.  I'll be making them again for sure.

Thanks again, BHG.  I'm still waiting for the recipe that isn't one I add to my recipe box.  When it comes to cookies, I get along quite well with all.

Saucepan Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 well-beaten eggs
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut, chopped, or 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (optional)

Grease cookie sheet and set aside.  Melt butter in small saucepan over medium-low heat.  Remove and place in mixing bowl; add both sugars and stir.  Cool for five minutes.  Add eggs one at a time, beating until smooth.  Stir in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add oats (and optional ingredients); stir until just combined.

Drop batter by rounded teaspoonful on the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes or until edges are firm and golden.

I added the chocolate chips to mine and drizzled melted chocolate over the top; oats shouldn't be without chocolate.
